Can’t wait. (Plus a giveaway.)

They’re starting to turn red.

Blushy orange.

Plump and ripe.

Full of surprises.

I can’t wait.

Speaking of surprises, this plant (shown above) definitely surprised me. I had never seen or expected these blossoms. So, since you’re all so clever, how about you tell me what you think they are? Everyone who comments with a guess will be entered to win something fun from my stash–this is impromptu so I don’t know exactly what the prize is yet, but it will be of the fabricy variety. So tell me! Do you know what this plant is?

Good luck, and here’s to hoping you have beautiful ripening things in your gardens, too.

    I have a black thumb. I wouldn’t know what to guess! But, I’d love the chance to win. Tulip? Just kidding. How about some kind of Hydrangea??

    It is a member of the Allium family. I just can’t tell you which one. Perhaps Egyption onions?
